VT Standard River Management Principles and Practices
The VT Rivers Program has been under development for a decade but since Tropical Storm Irene, a number of important policies and regulations have been developed and updated. Some of the key rules, permit information, and management guidelines can be found at the Rivers Program website:
- Stream Alteration Rules
- Stream Alteration General Permit
- Standard River Management Principles and Practices
These regulations and technical guides are based on principles of fluvial geomorphology and establish standards for managing streams and rivers in dynamic equilibrium conditions.
